Advice on using a forklift gas bottle handler
The multi-purpose forklift gas bottle handler from Lifting365 is designed for transporting gas cylinders safely and securely. As gas bottles often contain hazardous materials, reducing manual lifting as much as possible is vital, which makes our handler ideal to improve health and safety on sites where gas bottles are moved regularly. The gas bottle handler stocked by Lifting365 contains fork pockets for easy fitting to the truck, ensuring there is little downtime due to fitting.
The gas bottle handler is suitable for use with a wide variety of gas bottle dimensions, from 240mm diameter butane gas bottles to 318mm diameter propane gas bottles. The cylinders can be secured to the handler using individually tensioned webbing and ratchet straps. Plus, like many of our lifting products, the gas bottle handler is painted in a yellow gloss finish so it is easily identified and seen when attached to the forklift. With all our lifting products, safety is paramount, and this is especially important when it comes to attachments that transport potentially dangerous substances.
All our forklift attachments come fully tested and certified to comply with the most up-to-date health and safety regulations. Our gas bottle lifter is made of top quality materials, comes CE marked and is supplied with a certificate of conformity.
